Check it: the new Fuji Instax Mini. An instant film camera like Polaroid — but with sharper, bolder, crisper, and smaller (credit card sized) prints.
Now that’s insto-awesome.
p.s. The beloved (so beloved we can’t keep it in stock) Zumi Digital is back in the shop. Grab one while you still can!

Some Photojojo Safety Advice:
Never ever (ever ever) ride your bike without a helmet.
And while your at it, never ride your bike without a camera.
We love bikes. And we of course, love cameras. So we’re quite tickled by the Happy Helmet Camera Mount.
It’s a simple little strappy with a tripod mount for your camera, so it can always ride shotgun!
p.s. We’d love to see our lovely yellow book traveling the planet. Did you know The Photojojo Shop ships internationally? Cause we do, er, it does.
p.p.s. Surprise! We’re giving away Photojojo books (today only) on Facebook and Twitter. Find out how over here.

Three years ago, we set out on a mission: to inspire your digital photos to be more than mere megapixels.
So we started a website, and sent out a newsletter. And then we sent out more newsletters. Then the Photojojo Shop was born (while we kept sending newsletters).
And now … WE HAVE A BOOK! You know — paper, ink, a table of contents. The whole shebang.
Complete with 192 full-color pages of our most popular photo projects (all souped up) plus tons of new ones, and some great ideas from the most talented folks we know.
It’s been a year in the works, and we can. not. wait. for you to see it.
p.s. To celebrate our launch we’re giving away tonso stuff from the Photojojo Shop; Bottle Cap Tripods, Level Camera Cubes, Magnetic Photo Rope and ten copies of our book. All week long!
Just RT @photojojo … we’ll be picking winners until Friday.
AND we started a Photojojo Book Group on Flickr for everyone to share their first cuddly book moments.
Look! Below the jump! A sneak peek for you, darling reader: one of the projects from our super fantastic master work of literature (plus 3 more crafty tidbits). Enjoy.
*A Photojojo Confession*
For all the boasting, and oh my gosh wowing over digital photography stuffs — we sometimes miss shooting with film.
What we don’t miss is the hassle of buying film and getting it developed.
Which is why we are so truly, deeply, and madly in love with The Digital Zumi. She’s a palm sized camera that takes the dreamiest lo-fi videos (and photos) that look just like vintage film.
All the charm of film with the ease of digital? This camera is so us!
p.s. We’ve only got a bit of our Zumi stock in and more is on the way. So if you’ve got a hankering, best act now to reserve for the next shipment ;)
Our photos were a crooked conundrum — it was sheer panoramic pandemonium.
That is, until we found The Perfect Pano, a rotating tripod tool that clicks into place every 30 degrees so you can overlap your shots evenly. Plus, The Level Camera Cube, a triple axis bubble level that mounts to your hot shoe for straight shooting.
Their powers combined will give you the bestest, all around, straight across, most perfect shots you could ask for in one go.
Never done a panorama? Don’t know how to start? You know what’s coming, don’t you…
We’re going to teach you! We’ll tell you what panoramas are, how to shoot one, how to put it together, and where to find free software to help you. Just keep reading, bucko.
“Life” wouldn’t have been the same without it. “National Geographic” would have been a washed-out mess.
Heck, they even named a state park after the stuff.
It’s Kodachrome. And it’s been discontinued.
So enjoy it while it lasts! Shoot just one roll of Kodachrome so you can say you used the greatest film of the 20th Century.
We know where to find it, we know what’s so great about it, and we’re gonna tell you, ’cause we want you to feel like all the world’s a sunny day.
Indeedy-deed, what was once a simple vision of the future is now a reality, and just in time for Dad’s Day (it’s right around the corner kids) on June 22nd!
We’re talking NEW Eye-Fi SD Memory Cards with wireless photo (and now video) camera to computer uploading.
Thanks to Eye-Fi technology and a little help from the internetz you are now able to …
Thanks to Photojojo (and designer Irina Blok), you may now enjoy the comforting presence of Adobe Photoshop even when your computer’s off!
Introducing The Photoshop Photo Frame — a nifty little design piece that’ll surely stop your Photo-shopping heart in its tracks.
This (real life) desktop frame is screen printed down to the last pixel: window buttons, scroll bars, “.jpg” title, and even a “transparent” checkered background.
… now, if only life itself had a friendlier GUI.
As a Mom’s Day thanks (for rearing geeks like us) Photojojo searched far and wide for the cutest darn’d camera bag out there.
‘lo and behold,
Finally, a case for SLRs that’s a bit more, how shall we say this — vivacious? Bold? Jazzy? Bad-ass?
Our little Bowler Bettie is the spunkiest camera tote around. Complete with a cush quilted liner, adjustable divider, two side pockets, and one serious attitude.
Time to buckle up, Photojojo fans.
We’re not sure who decided that camera accessories should be ugly, bulky and downright drab, but we’re not fans.
So we’ve got a huge crush on these hip new camera straps we just found.
Salvaged from the back seats of some funky old automobiles, these straps feature adjustable slide buckles and are super-comfy, and super-strong.
Plus, each one is made by hand in Chicago using only love & recycled materials.
Get yours in Porsche Purple, T-bird Teal, Mercedes Gold, or Dodge Silver!
